Myagdi, June 5: A suspension bridge has been constructed over the Ghoptekhola (rivulet) in Dandakateri along the Annapurna-Dhawalagiri community eco-trekking route which covers Annapurna of Myagdi and Jaljala of Parbat district.    

Locals and tourists have been benefitted from the suspension bridge constructed in Jaljala rural municipality-5, Ghoptekhola.    
The 50-metre-long bridge has been constructed with the financial and technical support of Agriculture Aid Association, British Gorkha Nepal, informed chairperson of the users’ committee Jit Bahadur Pun.    

He further shared that the bridge has been constructed at a cost of Rs 4,750,496. “The locals have donated 85 days of their in-kind labour worth Rs 115,200 for the construction of the bridge,” he said.    

Narayan Pun, a local, said that the residents of Banskharka, Mallaj, Dandaketari, Bandahe and Nagi of Myagdi have benefited from the bridge. He said that the bridge has been useful as it is a trekking route to Mohredanda and Punhil Ghodepani via Banskharka Dandaketari.   

It has shortened the travel time and ended the compulsion for the locals to walk through the route with turns. (RSS)
